The purpose of my blog is to inspire and shine a light on the beauty and power of the wonderful being inside your body. You came into this world to share what only you can give. Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.

Having been in business for decades before retiring, one of the great frustrations is not being told anything – about a proposal, about a job, about a request – leaving you to just assume the answer is no.

And most of all respect for the person themselves. Many tend to put them at last which doesn’t help anyone. Thank you very much for your thoughts, Mark πŸ’–

Still, it takes too long until we dare to even consider it. It takes more courage to do so, although it is absolutely legit πŸ’–
